Call for Papers (CPTIC 2014)

Attende

Abstract Deadline: October 22, 2013

Abstract Acceptance Notification Extend to November 15, 2013

Manuscript Deadline: December 15, 2013

On behalf of the CPTIC organizer committee, we would like to invite you to participate the 2014 China Photovoltaic Technology International Conference, scheduled to take place from March 16 - 17, 2014 at Shanghai International Convention Center, Shanghai, China. CPTIC is organized by SEMI, co-organized by China Photovoltaic Industrial Association (CPIA), and it is one of the largest and technical annual photovoltaic conferences in China. In 2013, PV market is still struggling because of the demand and supply issues. Currently, the price of solar module has stabilized and the PV installation continuously increases. It shows a sign of recovering. CPTIC 2014  will be one of the largest symposia in CSTIC 2014. The Si Materials and Photovoltaic Technology symposium will emphasize on reviewing current status of PV market and key PV technologies that will make game change. The symposium will have four sessions.
 
Prospective authors are requested to submit an abstract of 200-500 words and a 100-word biography by October 22, 2013. The abstract must clearly describe the nature, scope, content, organization, key points and significance of the proposed paper, using the templates on the CSTIC website.
 
Presentations are to be original, non-commercial in that they focus on the technical merits of a design, a method, a structure, an integration scheme, a material or a process rather than on the individual company’s products and their benefits. All abstracts will be reviewed by CSTIC committees. Accepted papers will be notified no later than November 1, 2013.

Manuscripts of accepted papers which should be about six pages in length, including diagrams, figures, and photographs, are to be submitted electronically via the ECS Transaction website. The deadline for manuscript submittal is December 15, 2013. English oral presentation materials are required by February 10, 2014. After peer reviews, accepted manuscripts will be published in the ECS Transactions. They are subject to co-copyright with ECS and SEMI who reserve the rights to republish, re-sell, and display the submitted materials in whole or in part.
 
Outstanding papers will be recommended for publication in a peer-reviewed, reputable international journal.
 
ECS Best Student Paper Awards and SEMI Best Young Engineer Paper Awards will be presented during the conference to recognize outstanding scientific and/or engineering work in fundamental or applied semiconductor technologies by a student or a young engineer in the world, particularly in China. Three awards will be presented in each of the two categories: student awards and young engineer/scientist awards. The nominee must be a graduate student or a young scientist or a young engineer who is the primary author of the paper to be presented at the CSTIC conference. The age of the nominee generally should be younger than 35. Besides the technical paper, the Award candidates are required to submit to the Award Committee documentation of the nominee’s accomplishments including a list of publications, patents, professional and educational experiences and a brief support letter before January 30, 2014. The Award winners will be selected by the SESEA Award Committee based on the technical merits of the submitted papers and the supporting materials.
 
CSTIC Best Poster Awards will be given to best posters presented at the conference to recognize outstanding scientific and/or engineering work in fundamental or applied semiconductor technologies by any authors in the world, particularly in China. Three awards will be presented in this category. The nominee must be a graduate student or a young scientist or a young engineer who is the primary contributor of the paper to be presented at the CSTIC conference.  All poster papers will be eligible for consideration of these CSTIC Best Poster Awards. The Award winners will be selected by the SESEA Award Committee based on the technical merits of the submitted papers and visual presentation of the posters.
